Childhood Matters: Do Boys Learn Differently from Girls? — September 26, 2010
Why are boys lagging behind girls academically? New data shows that boys have dropped behind in reading in every state; this problem seems to cut to the core of boys' difficulties keeping up in school. Additionally, struggling boys are twice as likely as girls to be suspended, and three times as likely face school expulsion. Join us as Nurse Rona and guests discuss how we can more effectively engage boys in school and motivate them to succeed. Guests:
• Matt Foley, a coach at Student Organizational Services.
• Love Weinstock, assistant head of the East Bay School for Boys.
